"Momma, what's this?"
"That's a credit card."
"Aw. Is it broken?"
"No, we cut it up."
"Why did you do that?"
"Because we don't want to use it anymore to buy stuff. We want to use our real money - like from the piggy bank."
"Oh, ok... I'll take your money, then."
"Don't worry. You already do."
"Look, Charlotte! It's the light of America, the Sun!"
"Mom, when they're ready for me, I can go to high school. Is that cool?"
"Yeah, Joan. But I don't know if high school will ever really be ready for you."
"Do you know how boo-boos can come off? They come off in a few weeks."
"I said hi to the cat, but he didn't answer me because I'm in the car and cats can't talk."
"Momma, there's not gonna be any 'thank yous' today."
"What do you mean? Why not?"
"Because Charlotte's never gonna learn."
"Joan, please pick up all of these colors."
"But I can't. With all my heart, I can't."
"I'm the new queen of America. Nice to meet you, y'all."
"Oh, Joan - your toenail polish looks pretty. Papa did a good job. But he didn't paint your fingernails?"
"He did. I just licked them off."
